This is my second quilt, technically my first quilt top, but then I started and finished my first quilt which I've posted here.

This was a present for my father in law. He's an amateur astronomer, complete with a domed telescope in his backyard out in the country. I figured he would benefit from a nice lap quilt, and when I saw the blue gold-speckled fabric, it reminded me so much of space that I couldn't help but start making this quilt!

The brown fabrics include various circle motifs, and then the pattern itself is circular. Symbolic, but not obvious.



This was much easier to freemotion quilt, and I got fancy and used matching threads to really make it look snazzy.

Sorry the picture's not bigger, it was the one week my camera's battery was empty, so mom took this shot. I'll have to take nicer and close shots of it when I go to visit them next.

Wow, it's beautiful. I love your choice of fabric, it really does look cosmic!!
Definitely need some close-ups of the free motion quilting.
I especially love the fact you chose a really simple design and let the fabric speak for itself. Fantastic quilt!!!
